Meghan Markle's half-sister, Samantha, tweeted Monday that she is to blame for the photo debacle. "Knowing that they really share the same values as I do about food provenance, sustainability, seasonality and most importantly flavor, makes this the most exciting event to be a part of". "I hate the idea of missing one of the greatest moments in history", Markle Sr. told TMZ.
On Tuesday it was claimed he did not want to miss the wedding after his daughter reached out to him.
Of course, Thomas Markle's decision could still change, so here's a rundown of everything that's happened so far.
The bride-to-be's parents are divorced and while Harry has been pictured with her mother, Doria Ragland, 61, there had been speculation about how Mr. Markle, a former lighting director for TV soaps and sitcoms, would feature.
A Palace spokesman said: "This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding".
She also added the media had "raked him over the coals" and "distorted his image", stating that "he had a moral right to set the record straight and defend himself".

Markle's engagement to Prince Harry was announced last November.
Like most everyone else with a taste for fairytales, Germans love the spectacle of a royal wedding.
A source told Britain's Express newspaper that "Her Majesty and the Duke are very angry with Meghan's father".
BA also said any passengers named Harry, Meghan or Megan flying on Saturday will be allowed to use its first-class lounge and all customers on the day will be given lemon and elderflower Victoria sponges, the same flavor as the royal couple's wedding cake. But on Wednesday morning Thomas told the website that he needed to have a heart operation to clear a blockage and fit a stent meaning he's unable to travel. He said she sent him a text saying she loved him and was anxious about his health, and is not angry about the staged paparazzi photo shoot.
As to how Meghan is coping with her father's health battles and negative publicity, a source familiar with the situation told People magazine, "She doesn't deserve all this drama the week of her wedding".
